WALTON COUNTY, Fla— Early Wednesday morning a woman was rammed by a vehicle on State Road 285 in Mossy Head. Moments later, she was pulled from her car.

The pair was already driving a stolen gray Kia when they crashed into the victim’s Chevy Cruz at around 6:15 am. After the crash, a passer-by attempted to intervene and Jones brandished a gun, pulled the victim from the vehicle, and left the scene. The pair then drove to the area of Girl Scout Road and abandoned the sedan in a wooded area.
